Mark Ronson has announced details of his first single in more than two years.

'Bang Bang Bang', which features vocals from rapper Q-Tip and electropop singer MNDR, will be released in the UK on July 11.

The track, which also includes a songwriting contribution from Kaiser Chiefs drummer Nick Hodgson, will receive its first play on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show this evening.

Describing the song's origins in a press statement, Ronson said: "When we played all those festivals in 2007, we'd end up in the dance tent.

"And I got so jealous when Justice or Soulwax or Pendulum would go into their double-time breaks, and all the kids would start jumping up and down. And we never had that tempo in our set. So I just wanted that in one of our songs."

'Bang Bang Bang' is the lead single from Ronson's upcoming third album Record Collection.

Its predecessor, 2007 covers collection Version, went triple platinum in the UK after spawning a trio of top ten hits with 'Stop Me', 'Oh My God' and 'Valerie'.
